CAPRE’s Data Center & Cloud Infrastructure Round Up for Aug 26, 2019

CAPRE’s Data Center Round Up for Aug 27, 2019 3
Check out the latest in deals, development and disruptive technology in the data center industry for August 26, 2019:

  • Cisco Likes to Shift to Healthy Chunk of Compute to Cloud, Close Several Data Centers: According to a Wall Street Journal interview with the CIO of Cisco Systems, Jacqueline Guichelaar, the tech giant is investigating the possibility of shutting down several data centers in favor of transferring more data to public cloud services. “As technologists, we have a huge responsibility to make sure we’re always thinking about how to optimize power consumption,” she said. “Environmental issues and cost issues sometimes go hand in hand.” The story continue, “Cisco currently uses undisclosed public-cloud providers for some data. The company said it has 22 data centers world-wide and it plans to reduce that number by 30% within about five years.”
  • Global Media Company Selects Zayo for Connectivity Between Key European Hubs: A global media company has selected Zayo to deliver connectivity between two key production hubs in Amsterdam and London. The new service will deliver high-bandwidth, diverse connectivity between the two sites meeting the global media company’s specified low latency needs. This will support its technology transformation, enabling greater generation and access to content from its wide range of live sports broadcasts. As part of the deal, Zayo will extend its network reach to Hilversum Media Park, which is located just outside Amsterdam and is home to a number of national, European and global media companies. In addition, Zayo will also extend and upgrade its network reach in Rotterdam, the second-largest city in the Netherlands and a key hub for the logistics and petrochemical industry.
  • Cyxtera Adds HPE ProLiant Servers to CXD On-Demand Data Center Platform: Cyxtera Technologies has added HPE ProLiant servers as an on-demand compute option through its Cyxtera Extensible Data Center (CXD) platform. CXD gives customers point-and-click provisioning over a range of connectivity and infrastructure services from Cyxtera and a global partner ecosystem. Available across Cyxtera’s CXD-enabled global data centers, CXD Compute offerings, including Nutanix-powered HCI nodes as well as the new bare-metal offering, allow customers to quickly provision compute capacity on-demand to augment existing colocation environments, rapidly expand into new markets or build private cloud environments.
  • DataBank Acquisition of Lightbound Receives Regulatory Approval: Last week, DataBank received FCC approval for its acquisition of Lightbound, an Indianapolis-based provider of colocation, Internet, voice, network and cloud services. This FCC approval clears the path for the transaction to close in the weeks ahead and represents an important milestone in DataBank’s continued expansion into emerging edge markets. Originally announced on December 17, 2018, the Lightbound acquisition will add 73,000 Gross Square Feet of colocation space and 9.5MW of installed UPS power to the DataBank portfolio.
  • Splunk to Acquire Cloud Monitoring Leader SignalFx: Splunk will acquire SignalFx, a SaaS leader in real-time monitoring and metrics for cloud infrastructure, microservices and applications. Splunk is already a leader in ITOM and an AIOps pioneer and, upon close, will be a leader in observability and APM for organizations at every stage of their cloud journey, from cloud-native apps to homegrown on-premises applications. This breadth of innovation will help customers deliver cost savings, increased revenue and an improved customer experience, and firmly places Splunk as the vendor most qualified to deliver these outcomes across the entire suite of enterprise applications at any scale. Under the terms of the agreement, Splunk will acquire SignalFx for a total purchase price of approximately $1.05 billion, subject to adjustment, to be paid approximately 60% in cash and 40% in Splunk common stock.

Allen Tucker Commentary: Data Center Demand Takes A Breather

CAPRE’s Data Center Round Up for Aug 27, 2019 5
Allen Tucker participates in CAPRE’s 2018 Data Center Industry Forecast, held on January 31, 2018 at 1757 Golf Club in Dulles, VA.

Legendary data center broker, Allen Tucker, recently posted his thoughts on the state of data center leasing in 2019.  At CAPRE, we’re pleased to share his intelligence.


Still on the Tucker Summer Trek America Tour. See you in September! In the meantime, here’s the summary 1st half 2019 data center market update.

#NoVA / #InternetCapitol had lower #datacenter absorption in 1H19 at 86MWs vs 173 MWs in 1H18, while exceeding 1H17 at 50MWs.  Keep in mind that no other #datacenter market in the world has ever exceeded 70MWs of annual absorption. I believe this reduction represents a momentary pause as demand takes a breath after an enormous 2018.

At the same time #InnovationAlley (Prince William County, VA; a major data center market southwest of Ashburn) had its best absorption EVER with nearly 25MWs in 1H19. #InnovationAlley had greater demand absorption than all collective east coast Tier 1 data center markets outside of #Ashburn / #DataCenterAlley. Altogether, Northern Virginia’s second largest submarket is now a top location for data center demand in its own right.

In comparison, most US #datacenter markets had significantly lower #datacenter demand absorption in 1H19.

Vacancy continues to be flat in several Tier 1 markets (Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, New York). International markets, FLAP (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris) are poised for growth similar to 2014 US demand with modest initial deployments by hyperscalers and enterprises. The long term data center outlook has significant positive demand trends.

WeWork Acquires Co-Working Rival Spacious

WeWork Acquires Co-Working Rival Spacious
spacious.com

WeWork, now known as The We Company, announced this morning the acquisition of a rival co-working business, Spacious. The three-year-old, New York-based startup turns restaurants that sit empty during the day into co-working spaces, and is one of several niche co-working startups — like Convene, Knotel, Industrious, The Yard, The Wing and Alley, for example.

Spacious  was co-founded in 2016 by CEO Preston Pesek, whose background is in commercial real estate. The company’s goal was to take advantage of under-utilized urban spaces, including abandoned retail stores and empty restaurants, to serve the co-working crowd. The company has since converted dozens of restaurants in New York and San Francisco into weekday work spaces.

Customers can access the work spaces with anything from a $20 day pass all the way up to a $129 per month annual membership.

The restaurants benefit from the arrangement by gaining a new form of revenue in what’s an otherwise slim margin business, while also having the chance to attract new customers from the Spacious members who frequent their business. Customers, who may have otherwise worked from coffee shops, liked the arrangement because it was more affordable than WeWork. Some may have also liked that there was a hard stop to their workday, as the restaurant would have to open for business.

The Spacious team and its lineup of work spaces will now come to WeWork, the company says.

“Spacious’s team and real estate and operational expertise will help enable WeWork to continue to give our members access to the work space they want, when they need it,” said WeWork chief product officer Chris Hill. “We’re thrilled to welcome Spacious to WeWork,” in a statement.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Spacious had raised just over $9 million, according to data from Crunchbase, from investors including Baseline Ventures, Redpoint, Lerer Hippeau, August Capital, MetaProp NYC and BoxGroup.

The full announcement from Spacious CEO Preston Pesek is below.

It’s our great pleasure to announce to the Spacious community the exciting news that we are joining the WeWork family.

Since our inception, Spacious has explored new ways of activating and re-programming the physical built environment, in direct response to the technological changes that are revolutionizing how we interact with spaces, buildings, and cities.

In WeWork, we have found much natural alignment across our visions for the integration of work, technology, and physical space. We’re thrilled for the opportunity to continue to serve our members at Spacious today as part of the greater WeWork community.

Spacious’s service delivers a distributed network of walk-in, on-demand workspaces, wrapped in an experience of stylish hospitality. By joining WeWork, we’re taking the next step in providing easy access to on-demand workspaces across the world.

I would like to extend a big thanks to everyone who has joined us on this journey of building Spacious. From our team of amazing employees, to our loyal and enthusiastic customers, to our pioneering space and real estate partners, and to our intrepid investors, thank you. I hope you will join me in celebrating this exciting new opportunity with WeWork.

Sincerely yours,

Preston Pesek

CEO of Spacious

GoDaddy launches updated Investor iOS app

CAPRE’s Data Center Round Up for Aug 27, 2019 13
Update app is a complete rebuild that will lead to new features in the future.

GoDaddy has launched an updated GoDaddy Investor iOS app for bidding on domain name auctions. A new Android app should be released in the coming weeks.

The updated app has a new look. It also lets you sort your lists by end time, price, alpha and auction type.

While the features aren’t a big upgrade from the last version, a lot has been done behind the scenes that will lead to big updates in the future, including the ability to search for domains. (Right now you have to add domains through the web interface for them to show up in the app.)

Also, the app fixes an issue for people that use a physical security key for two-factor authentication. They can use app-based two-factor codes to log into the app now.
